Clemson Rumors: Chad Kelly's Dismissal Linked To Hit & Run With Miss South Carolina

It's been a troubling day for Clemson rumors, and some new information has just surfaced that could explain further why quarterback Chad Kelly, nephew of Buffalo Bills great Jim Kelly, was escorted off Clemson's practice field by police on Monday and promptly dismissed from the program.

Here is a full statement from the Twitter account of Ali A Rogers, Miss South Carolina for 2012 and a current employee of the Clemson football department: reported a rumor that the hit & run was linked to Kelly's dismissal earlier on Monday, prompting many Clemson Tigers fans to bombard Rogers via Twitter with questions surrounding the incident.

In a statement released earlier by Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, Swinney explained Kelly's dismissal from the program:

“He has had a pattern of behavior that is not consistent with the values of our program. I hope he will mature and grow from this and become the man and player I know he can be. I wish him nothing but the best in the future academically and athletically.”
